British Masters Indoor Championships – Lee Valley 26/27 Feb 2011

The amazing Tony Bowman added the M75 60m hurdles European Record to the M70 version that he still holds. He smashed the previous best of 11.16s, to set new figures of 10.77s. This was one of FOUR titles Tony won on a weekend where everything was gold for Leeds City athletes. The 60m sprint was won with 9.07s,just a hundredth away from his seasons best. In winning the 200m, Tony ran a best for the year of 30.78s and 81.43 in the 400m for another win and a mere hundredth again away from his best for the season.

In the field,Julien Gittens easily won the M45 triple jump title with 11.98,over 1.5m ahead of second place.

I was struggling with injury niggles and managed only 1.70m in the high jump off a three stride run up,good enough for equal first.
